BIO is the new TECH

General description

Have you ever wondered what a brilliant concept is hidden behind a simple thing such as the velcro attachment for shoes? Do you know why plane wings have that particular form on their end?

What if we told you that those two examples and many others have their origin in nature?

Biomimetics: the art of creating inspired by nature.

Come to BEST Lyon and you will learn all about this incredible topic! Because nature has all the answers; because we only have to take its example in order to resolve any of our problems.

Join our Biomime-trip and you will discover the wonderful city of lights, gastronomy and cinema, always hand in hand with our awesome organizers and the other lovely participants who will be sharing with you this amazing adventure.

What are you waiting for to apply?!
